JULY entries are still welcomed!

KEEN writers in Bahrain are being offered the chance to publish their work on Bahrain's sensational social media platform in an exciting GDNlife prize competition. 

Adult wordsmiths will compete for a monthly BD25 prize and one talented child will walk away with a pair of Cineco Cinemas movie tickets. Both winning stories will also be announced in the GDN and on GDNonline.  

Winning stories, of no more than 800 words, will then compete for an annual GDNlife Short Story of the Year prize trophy … and even entries that do not win the judges’ approval could still walk away with an accolade - The GDNlife People’s Choice Award - for receiving the most views and likes.

GDN Managing Editor and GDNlifeadministrator Stanley Szecowka said: “All writers dream of having their work published and our community platform offers a unique opportunity for them to shine and win prizes!”

For the adult competition (18 and over) which is open to all residents of Bahrain, GDNlife has teamed up with the Bahrain Writers Circle, to judge the entries.
The children’s category (up to 17), again open to locals and expats, will be judged by a team of English teachers and GDNlifeadministrators.

The competition is now open. Simply write your short story of no more than 800 words and post it in the SHORT STORY section of GDNlife after registering on the platform. Clearly state the category: adult or U18.

Winners will be announced early every month on the platform, in print and online. 

All entries submitted will be considered, so if your entry does not win this month, it may take a prize in the future.

Please choose an image to highlight your words and title your piece Short Story Entry with your name, age and category.

Get writing … you could be a winner in July!
